Contemporary Romance, LGBTQ
Aaron Costa's summer was all planned. Despite having to remodel the family lake house, it would be a vacation of sorts, and he had every intention of enjoying it—until the friend who was supposed to help him got injured and left him in a lurch. He decides to take the opportunity to bond with his son and hires Julian and his roommate, Malachi, to assist.
As a broke college student, Malachi could use the money, and spending the summer with Aaron for eye candy sounds like a dream. "Look but don't touch" becomes his motto. But when Julian starts flaking on his responsibilities and Malachi and Aaron are forced to spend long hours alone together, their mutual attraction is impossible to resist.
Aaron can't fight the temptation sexy Malachi presents. But more than their age difference stands in their way, not the least of which is Aaron's semi-closeted status and the fact that he's never openly discussed his sexuality with his son. He has no idea how Julian will react when he learns his father is not only gay, he's also dating his best friend.

WOOD, SCREWS & NAILS is funny and sexy, basically everything I've come to love and expect from Piper Vaughn.
Aaron decides to invite his college-age son to help him remodel a family lake house. His son, Julian, decided to bring along his friend Malachi.
What happens when Aaron and Malachi find themselves in a secret relationship over the summer? A whole lotta hot sex, that's what.
Their story was much deeper than that, though. I liked that there was dual POV's, there was a struggle and hesitation from both of them as their relationship moved forward. Even though Malachi was the same age as Aaron's son, the age difference was believable and really worked for me.
Julian was unlikable for quite a bit of the story. He acted like a spoiled brat and, I guess, it was understandable, but he really rubbed me the wrong way. In the end, he did grow up a little to win me over, though.
But back to the sex, really. I've read a lot of M/M romance and this has some of the best scenes I've ever come across.
There were a couple struggles and some light angst, but WOOD, SCREWS & NAILS was a fun, light and really sexy read.
